7:00am
studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today." i'm savannah guthrie, along with matt lauer, al roker and natalie morales. we're all back from the inauguration. some of us had an inaugural experience a little more memorable than others. >> you have to come out of your shell. that was wild. >> it was an odd moment. i was very grateful. very appreciative. the president acknowledging, and then the vice president. >> acknowledging? you're hard to ignore. >> i'm like a car alarm. >> it was going to get you a handshake or cuffs. one of the two. >> looking right at you. >> and then the vice president. >> mr. vice president! mr. vice president! >> it was great. we all loved it. egging you on. here he comes.
7:01am
>> yes! >> persistence pays off. that's pretty good. we'll have more on that in a little while. meanwhile, a lot of people talking about the first lady last night at the inaugural ball in that stunning red gown. >> beautiful red gown getting rave reviews. the designer is jason wu. this is what they call a three-peat. he did the gown at the 2009 inaugural. he will join us live exclusively in a few moments. >> we'll have more highlights from that historical day, including how president obama is using his inaugural address as a call to action for a second term. also ahead, what do you think about co-workers who show up even though they are sick? >> i don't do it that often. >> it's actually a serious story. sometimes people don't have a choice. sometimes they aren't paid for their sick days, so they have to go to work or don't get paid. so we're talking about more efforts to make sick pay mandatory.
7:02am
and rare interviews with prince harry in afghanistan that are getting a lot of attention. he talks rather candidly and openly about opening fire on the taliban. that much talked about trip to vegas and the duchess' pregnancy. we'll hear from the prince coming up. also, scary video as you've seen. the high school wrestler taking his position on the mat when a huge spotlight falls on him. fortunately, he is okay. actually, he finds humor in what happened. as you see, he turned out well. he's going to share his story in a live interview in just a little bit. >> all right. we'll get to that. let's talk about this arctic blast. it's cold for a lot of people in this country. >> we're looking at dangerous windchills and we're talking about a lot of lake-effect snow. this is cleveland, ohio. this is lake-effect snow. the great lakes are ice free today. and that's a big problem. that's going to set things up from lake superior, lake michigan, on erie, ontario. upper level low bringing that cold arctic air out of canada,
7:03am
comes across the warmer waters of the lakes, picks up the moisture. so we have winter weather advisories, lake-effect snow watches and snow warnings from houghton to watertown, new york. the snowfall is going to be predigious. from ashtabula to syracuse, new york, over the next 72 hours, we could be looking at 4 feet of snow in the tughill plateau, syracuse, and erie on into buffalo, new york. we're talking about massive amounts of snow. the cold air will be unprecedented as well. we'll get into that in a moment. savannah? we go to washington where it is back to work for president obama after the celebration of his second inaugural. the first lady, as we mentioned, was shining at last night's ball in a ruby-colored gown designed by jason wu. nbc's white house correspondent peter alexander has the details this morning.
7:04am
peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. the formal ceremonies conclude a short time from now. there's a prayer service at the washington national cathedral. both the president and vice president will be there. president obama dives head first into his second term, there is just enough time to savor what was a very special night. >> my better half and my dance partner, michelle obama. >> reporter: the showstopper inauguration night had nothing to do with politics. the first lady, dazzling fans at the commander in chief ball in a striking red gown by jason wu, the same designer who fashioned that unforgettable dress for the first inaugural. dancing to al green's "let's stay together" performed by jennifer hudson, the obamas took a spin at both of the night's inaugural balls. now the president heads back to work, his second term beginning with a ceremonial oath of office. >> so help you god.
7:05am
>> so help me god. >> congratulations. >> reporter: offered clues into his agenda, with an impassioned call for action. >> we are made for this moment and we will see that so long as we see this together -- >> reporter: the president promised a fight for immigration reform and gay rights. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> reporter: he pledged to tackle climate change and firmly defend entitlements like medicare and medicaid. >> they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risk that make this country great. >> reporter: as well as reiterating one of his immediate priorities, gun control. >> our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet streets of newtown know they are cared for and always safe from
7:06am
harm. >> reporter: historians say there's a unique opportunity. >> there's a magical moment in a second term. it's elusive and moves fast but when presidents get it right they often make history. >> reporter: before he headed back into the capitol on monday, the president paused for a moment. you could read his lips. i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. that really was a striking moment yesterday afternoon. next month during the state of the union we'll hear more proposals. emboldened by a political victory, laying out what was a clear liberal agenda, but he faces real challenges in the near future as he goes up against congressional republicans on the issues of debt reduction and trying to pass a budget. savannah? >> a lot of work ahead. peter alexander at the white house this morning for us. peter, thank you. now here's matt. we're hearing more about the group behind that deadly crisis in algeria.

7:08am

7:09am
concern that oil could top $100 a barrel this week. also fears that oil production could be impacted in places that are politically unstable. matt, back to you. >> janet shamlian on the story. janet, thank you very much. let's check in with natalie, she's got the day's top stories. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah, matt and al. terrifying moments in the sky after a southwest airlines flight was forced to abort take-off at denver international airport with 142 people on board. warning light in the cockpit caused the pilot to stop the plane abruptly, causing the brakes to overheat and three tires to blow. the passengers were safely evacuated from the plane. now let's head to wall street. courtney reagan has a check of the markets on this first trading day of the week. good morning to you. >> that's right, natalie. the major averages are sitting at five-year highs as stocks have actually seen gains for three straight weeks. investors remain squarely

7:12am
i think we can pretty much assume it's going to be a failure. >> a strong point and a thumb's up. really strong. >> the best we can hope for at this point. >> mr. president! mr. president! mr. president! mr. president! how's it going? is the weather good? is that fantastic? all right, mr. president! >> wow, that's huge. >> there you have it, the first interview with the newly reinaugurated 44th president of the united states. >> all right. >> wow! >> okay? okay? >> wow! that was, i think, an interview. >> are you duly impressed? >> al roker, let's double down. see what you can do with the vice president. >> i'm going to give it a try. mr. vice president! mr. vice president! hey, how are you doing? come on, come say -- come on. that's it. >> wow!

when you get the flu, doctors always say stay home and rest. what if you can't afford to? the severe flu season has increased the call to make paid sick leave mandatory. nbc's stephanie gosk has this story. steph, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. anyone who has the flu and showed up at work probably has heard it from co-workers, go home. but many aren't paid to stay home sick. and it makes a bad flu year even worse. emergency rooms are filled. workplaces are struggling. school desks are empty. and still it spreads. worrying about passing the flu on to her clients. the home health care provider fought through days of fever before seeing the doctor,
7:40am
because taking a sick day means not getting paid. can you afford to take two days off work and not get a paycheck? >> not really. >> reporter: a painful choice for a single mother with a 7-year-old daughter. she is part of a large group of working americans, 40 million, who have jobs that do not pay them for sick days. >> all around the country right now, there are people who wake up sick and are asking themselves, if i stay home, will i have groceries this week? can i keep the lights on? and many are asking, can i keep my job? >> reporter: a lot of those people choose the job and fuel the epidemic. for hospital worker, the mantra is prevention. get the flu shot. if you get the flu, stay home. one out of every four of these patients has the flu. in cities like new york there is a push for mandatory paid sick leave.
7:41am
legislation would require employers to pay for five sick days a year. san francisco, seattle, washington, d.c. and the state of connecticut already have similar laws. >> just wanted to call and see how you're feeling and if you knew when you would be back to work. >> reporter: this bus company pays its full-time employees for sick days but would have a hard time doing the same thing for part-time worker, who make up most of their workforce. >> as a small business it certainly does impact us. it seems everything has an additional cost lately. we certainly comply with whatever is required. >> reporter: it doesn't help worker workers like this woman. she doesn't get paid for a sick day in the emergency room. with cough and fever, she will be back on the job. it has been passed and then vetoed in philadelphia and new york. but a lot of places are giving it a second look. >> nancy snyderman is our chief
7:42am
medical editor. >> good morning, savannah. >> this is a complicated issue. people think if you're sick, stay home. for a lot of folks, they aren't getting paid. that makes a huge difference for them. what can they do? >> a single working mom, or small business owner who says i'm pinched already, there's an economic understanding there. if you look at just preventive health, an aid worker taking care of a 90-year-old person or hospital worker puts more people at work, we're looking at preventive health and the economic squeeze. those two things really right now are at loggerheads. >> obviously if you go to work and you're sick, there's the potential you get one of your co-workers sick, too. >> pretty good potential, because the virus can stay on n inanimate objects for eight hours. you should get a mandatory flu shot. university of pennsylvania, everybody has to be immunized.

8:12am
second -- like, wait, can we see it already? >> you had no clue. how it works is that you send a design but you have no clue whether she'll wear it. >> i work closely together with mrs. obama's team on achieving the right fit and right look for the dress. of course, we have no confirmation until the second she comes out. >> you obviously designed the gown in 2009 and now you have a repeat performance, 2013. too bad about term limits. you could have had a third one, too. does it ever get old? >> it never gets old. it's just amazing and it's just -- you know, at the time of designing the dress, both dresses, i just thought about mrs. obama and it's about designer and client to me. we never really think about everything else that comes with it. maybe better for that. and just to sort of realize it's a place in history.

my work in american history is amazing. >> these are the first images that came to your mind? >> yeah. i really have to go with my instinct and go with what i thought was really going to represent her to the best of my ability. >> have you ever met mrs. obama? >> i have. i have. every -- every bit as lovely as she seems on tv. >> what does it mean to you to know that your gowns will go down in history, they'll be in the smithsonian? >> as a designer and as somebody who moved america to become a designer, i think something quite incredible. i'm still pinching myself to see that's all real. >> no question, something like this happens, it puts you on the map. a lot of people hadn't heard your name four years ago but, boy, have they now. >> it was a tremendous experience and continues to be and now i just want to work harder. >> jason wu, i don't know how you top it but i'm sure you'll find a way at the young age of,

8:15am
it out of her closet. >> people come into the stores and it's not there? >> it's not available. >> do you go out and try to come as closely as possible to duplicating that for the next line? >> i think out of respect for the first family, we don't. we don't necessarily -- the cut that malia was wearing has been in our line for years. we'll continue that but won't do the color again out of respect for the family. and the belt that michelle obama was wearing, that was actually a sash. she fashioned it into a belt. she did her own thing with that and out of respect for her we won't do that. >> the girls sense of style over the years, how do you think it's evolved? >> interestingly enough we've had the opportunity to watch the girls grow up, gotten more sophisticated, no longer wearing crew cuts but big people j. crew. malia is almost as tall as her mom. for michelle, i feel like she
8:16am
has come into her own. we've really come to expect a level of sophistication. she loves the silhouette, more a-line on bottom and i think she has decided that's her look and stick to it. >> you're breathing rarefied air. they call you the woman who dresses america. it comes with a lot of pressure, doesn't it, as well? now everybody wants to knock you off that pedestal. >> oh, i'm sure it will happen. >> do you feel that, though? >> i think i feel a sense of responsibility to make feempeople feel good and look good. for me the reason i like to make clothes is that i want everyone, not just people who have a really big pocketbook, but for everyone to feel beautiful and feel like they can look in the mirror and say i look good. that's the reason i do t whether it be a pedestal or not, i feel incredibly humble to be

to survive the quirks, quandaries of today." we're going to give you scenarios and you'll give us your take and also what your readers are saying about these topics as well. my husband and i have nine grandchildren ranging in age from 10 to 22. we live at a distance. every year we send each of them christmas and birthday gifts. we love shopping for them and try to choose things they'll enjoy. but we never hear a peep back, not a single thank you, ever. it's as if the gifts disappear into a black hole but isn't commanding thanks. awkward. >> i'm thinking when i see this letter, batting zero for nine is like a terrible average. i write back to -- i answer the woman, the grandmother and say, okay, why don't you call the older grandchildren and call the parents of the younger grandchildren and say, you know,
8:21am
it would be really nice if i could hear when you get the gifts and how the kids liked them and i thought that was pretty, you know, middle of the road. do you feel differently? >> no, no. i think it's unacceptable that they don't write any thank you notes. >> wait till you hear what my readers had to say. >> what did the older ones say? >> the grandmothers and the grandfathers were so -- they were wiley coyotes. send an unsigned check. send a gift box with nothing in it. if they want the present, they'll get in touch. >> wow! >> what did the younger readers say? >> the younger readers were things like stamps? i've never even seen a stamp in nye life or the best one was, if i have to write a thank you note, i would really just rather not get the gift. >> that's terrible. >> that's awful. >> i think we're in a generational shift. >> parents raise their kids to write thank you notes and you
8:22am
would think that those kids would then have their kids do it. >> you would think, but apparently not. i would have been beheaded. but i'll tell you, there is -- so i'm thinking, well, what do we do to get to a place where everybody can be middle ground? where we can all be happy. maybe you start really young with the kids and you heap praise on them or you explain how good you're going to make somebody feel, nana is going to feel when she gets this note from you. maybe, i think, this is where we're really going. maybe a thank you phone call or thank you e-mail. >> at a minimum. second social quandary. someone wrote in my youngest child is three months old and cries much more thn my young two children did. she is often fussy when we return errands but it is not always possible to pick her up. still, some people offer advice about how to quiet her or try to
8:23am
keep her quiet by cooing at her or putting her binky in her mouth. >> hear a baby crying, it hurts you a little bit. so i say to the mother, when people come up to you and offer you advice, just smile and say she's colicky. but then, unfortunately, i stepped in it and said if you're in a small space and the baby howling for more than a minute, maybe it's time for you to rethink your to-do list and pick the baby up if that's going to quiet her or maybe take them outside. >> so what was your reaction? >> whoa, whoa. the young mommies are no big fans of mine this week. they are saying, why are you so hateful and anti-baby? kids make noise. get used to it. >> i think you're right. >> see, this is why i love you folks. >> on the flip side did you get a different reaction from other
8:24am

we're back now at 8:36 with a question. how many unread e-mails do you have in your inbox? the answer could say something about you and your personality. "today" national correspondent jenna wolfe is here to explain that. good news or bad news? >> it depends on how tidy you keep your inbox.
8:36am
we'll find out in a second. when e-mail appears in that inbox, what do you do? do you let it sit there? maybe you're like me, incapable of letting it sit there, incapable of doing anything else until you open it. either way, what our inboxes look like says a lot about what our personalities look like, too. there it is, that newly bolded font, that parenthetical number, that sealed little envelope. to some an unread e-mail is no big deal. but for others like me, it must die. maybe i have a problem. or maybe it's just my personality. there is a correlation between the way your inbox is kept and the kind of person you are, am i correct? >> yes, there is a correlation. how you are in your inner life is a reflection of how you do things in your outer life. >> let's take a couple of examples. editor for the new yorker, details are her job. >> basically everything between the covers is my realm every week. and so i know every last detail
8:37am
about every last piece. >> reporter: she also recently wrote about her quest to keep a completely pristine inbox. >> immediate visceral reaction like oh, my gosh, i want to know what it says and what i have to do about it. >> reporter: why wie kind of personality does this, according to the good doctor? >> might be a little more tight in the way they approach their life, so everything has to be in its place and the inbox, being a place. their closets are probably neat, their car is probably neat. >> it's so dorky to say but i've always loved cleaning my room. >> reporter: how about somebody who keeps a more robust e-mail count? >> somebody who is perhaps overextended, tends to be more expansive, doesn't focus on as much of the detail of life but has a bigger picture focus, they are focused more on the forest as opposed to the trees. >> some would say like our executive producer, john nash. a big picture guy who, when we barged into his office, had 167
8:38am
unread e-mails. >> if i look over here, can i -- you have three of them just from me that are unread. >> you're actually in my junk file. >> how can you sit with yourself, knowing that you have unread e-mails that are piling up in your inbox? >> constantly feel guilt by it. my goal every night is to go to bed with having gone through all the e-mails of today. >> and how many days have you ever done that in your life? >> twice. >> reporter: e-mail etiquette is something else. there's always one splinter in the group. half of the question in the subject line, the other half in the body. >> i want you to open the e-mail. it gives you a little teaser in the subject line and finish the sentence in the e-mail. it seems to work. >> it does. i've opened every single one of your e-mails. could be worse like not writing in the subject at all.
8:39am
>> i can't stand if people leave lines blank. when people start replying, you get the re, re: and you don't even know what it's about anymore. >> maybe those people save all the talking for their signature like my colleague, tom llamas. >> he has his title, his twitter address, work address, where exactly he is located, what he likes to do during the summer. i mean, every single e-mail to me. i said, tom, you're taking up my whole inbox. >> he wants everyone to know who he is. >> clearly. tom! >> i'm sort of a big deal, jenna. deal with it. >> oh, i'll deal with it, and probably soon. after all, i do like to keep a very tidy inbox. so i'm a zero kind of girl. it has to be zero all the time. without even knowing, you strike me as a zero kind of guy. i mean that in the nicest way. >> it would drive me crazy if there's an unopened e-mail. even if i briefly read it and do
8:40am
nothing about it, i have to have it open. >> so there is a correlation. and if you didn't have a cold matt, i would be sitting so much closer to you right now. >> i know you would. sorry about that. tom llamas, too much information. >> i know. the sneaker, little too much. >> too much. giada's comfort foods. could use some right now. perk you up in the middle of the could use some right now. perk you up in the middle of the ♪ ♪

last night's presidential inauguration has the whole world buzzing about the first family, especially the women. what will the next four years be like for malia and sasha? from harper bazaar, kelly wallace. let's break down some of the fashions, avril, that we saw, starting off with this beautiful red gown from jason wu. second time she's worn jason wu at an inaugural ball. jason, we heard him earlier say, he was shocked that she chose once again to wear his design. does it shock the fashion world as much? >> it totally shocked the
9:44am
fashion world. why should it shock us? it's a comfort zone. he dresses her beautifully. he has that key look that we all know and love, the white gown, hugely successful the first time around. and this great puff of color from last night. he was as surprised as everyone else. i think with her shocking choice of thom browne for the daytime look -- >> a men's wear designer that not a lot of people new. >> honestly he is very sort of insider in a way. i think that was a huge, huge hit. and the idea of accessorizing that with that little belt, which is her signature item. she loved the belt. >> from j. crew. >> a look that did not crease, looked fabulous all throughout the whole day, from the church service right to the very end. fabulous choices both times. >> what does it do for a designer like thom browne who perhaps didn't get as much attention before this, all of a sudden be on that fashion radar? >> it's very interesting. this, again, shows her
9:45am
intellectual in choosing these designers. we never would have thought this was the case. an out fit that worked really well. it just had that mens wear tailoring touch. it will propel him. from a slightly edgier designer, in many ways. >> edgy bangs. it's going to be great. >> hairdo worked perfect. softer, face framing look for the jason wu gown. stunning look. >> you had to be impressed, be we all were, with sasha and malia as well, how beautiful they looked but also how well poised they were. >> everybody keeps talking about it, just how normal they seem. they looked so fabulous, right, of course? when we saw those moments where they were on their phone, taking pictures of mom and dad. we've been lucky. we've had a lot of opportunity to sit around and talk with mrs. obama. the thing that keeps coming away from those conversations is how normal. the kids have sleepovers, they go to the movies. she calls friends, really now, to say how are the girls?
9:46am
are they the same? she so much wants to make sure that the white house bubble doesn't change them. by all accounts it doesn't seem as if it has. >> really great parenting. that's obvious as well. we see the girls on their iphones. that brings up the question of how they handle social media. this is something that kids of their age, 14 and 11, are certainly -- that is their new life. they're all about social media. do the obamas allow them to look and participate in facebook? >> no to facebook and no to twitter, purely really on a security issue, about being the white house children. but mrs. obama says they have conversations about it, that the girls are aware everybody has a cell phone, that they can't go off on someone and have a bratty moment. someone can take a picture of that and then that could define them forever. i thought that was amazing. they are acutely aware that they have this public image to uphold. that's pretty daunting, if you think about it, for a 14-year-old and an 11-year-old. >> we are talking about their style as well. they seem to also have their own sense of style, rocking j. crew
9:47am
and kate spade. >> yeah. >> and how much more are we going to see these girls really mapping, of course, for young girls everywhere? >> i don't think either parent wants them to be the poster child for fashionista, short skirts, high heels. >> they're relatable because they're high heels not uber brand. >> at the end of the day imagine what it's like buying one prom dress for one teenage girl. can you imagine what it was like to dress two teens for the inauguration? they both looked exquisitely color blended, like no coats were fighting with the other. >> not matchy matchy. >> and malia was slightly more grown up, little bit of tween moment. just perfect, just right. she's blossoming into a really gorgeous-looking teenage girl. >> i think we're all just stunned to see what beautiful young ladies, and how quickly they've grown right before our very eyes. >> absolutely. >> kelly wallace and avril graham, thank you so much. great to have your perspective

>> announcer: "today's" health is brought to you by kleenex brand tissues, softness worth sharing. this morning on "today's" health, what to eat when you've got the flu. whether you're starting to feel the symptoms or not, believe it or not, there are certain foods to help you fight the virus or at least help you recover. madelyn fernstrom is "today's" diet and nutrition editor. nice to see you. >> nice to see you, al. >> first off, very basics. you need to stay hydrated when you're sick like this. >> you have a fever, feel crumby and often you don't feel like eating or drinking anything, but you must drink. the fever, you're sweating and you need to replace these fluids. there's some easy ways to do this. you might think a glass of water is fine. often times that's just plain water, it doesn't give you the salt that you're losing as well. you might want to take some
9:51am
fruit slices and put them in water. that doesn't taste -- or sports drink and juice. if it's too acidy, like orange juice, water it down. having this mix of fluids is really important. if you're feeling like a weakling and you can't drink, use this sports bottle and squirt it into your mouth. you may not feel like you need a lot of fluid but you do. >> what about cold versus warm? does a warm drink help? >> it's a personal preference. because there's no rules here. if the warmth makes your stuffy nose feel better, you can hold it up, it's a sense of comfort. the most important thing is to have caffeine free. >> why caffeine free? >> it's a diuretic, makes you go to the bathroom more. stick with caffeine free things. >> chicken soup can't hurt. what about chicken soup? >> chicken soup may actually help. let's see if it's true. took some chicken soup, gave it to sick people and markers in
9:52am
the blood for immune response and flamation changed. food is not medicine, of course, but chicken soup will be something very good for you. >> if you've got kids, get them to hydrate with the popsicles. >> sometimes you don't feel like drinking. remember, you feel crumby. but fruit popsicles, especially, are a great way to get you some fluids. you can suck on them. it's at your own pace and it's not going to be giving you a lot, just small amounts. >> your stomach is a little gripy or you're having problems, there's things for you to help soothe that? >> stuffy nose is one thing. when you're having stomach symptoms, nauseous, feel a little off, diarrhea, several things can help. if you have flat ginger ale or cola -- they can help settle your stomach but not anything fizzy. that upsets your stomach. not a good thing. use a straw to sip it more slowly. and things like crackers. they're very good for an acidy stomach. visualize kind of sopping up things. ginger, you can make your own ginger tea.
9:53am
>> sure. >> if you want to or add some powder ginger. that will help a lot. >> if you're having trouble controlling things going on, certain things you can eat to help them. >> many parents will know this for chirp but it works for adults. brat diet. bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. kind of binds you up. you don't have to have all four. have one or two of these to help you. stick with things that are bland. if you have really bad symptoms, call your doctor. food is not going to really help with that. >> you can get dehydrated badly. >> you can. >> once you're feeling better you need to have protein. >> protein will help to rebuild and replenish your body. things like eggs, scrambled eggs, the most easily digestible protein, and yogurt. it has the healthy bacteria good for your digestive tract, al. >> what about protein drinks? >> protein drinks or shakes to help you when you recover. you don't have a big appetite for a week or two afterwards. have this. nothing replaces a nice well

10:18am
at nap time every afternoon the boys, you know, wait for the girls to use the toilet, and it just seemed -- it seemed absurd to me that in this environment in preschool of all places where we are trying to teach them how to take turns, how to share, which nobody wants to do. it just seems crazy to me at this point in our lives to say to them, this isn't fair, girls go first. >> i grew up in a house where my dad -- i never saw my mom touch a door. my dad always opened the car door, and my brother saw it from aey young age and watched it, and i don't think it's just about that. i think it makes them better men all the way around because they're just more mindful. especially you want the man who ends up being your husband to be a gentleman, and that is my thought. >> i think -- and that should be really the point of it and why i sort of agree with you on this. we teach them to be gentlemen, and we also have to teach them respect. it's not about being sexist or having to protect girls. at the same time we don't want
10:19am
